Statement of Bishop Donal on the vandalism of Christ Church, Derry

Statement of Bishop Donal on the vandalism of Christ Church, Derry

It was with disappointment and sadness that I heard about the vandalism in Christ Church and the desecration of this important place of worship. There has been a long-standing relationship between the congregations in Christchurch and St Eugene's Cathedral across the road. I know from talking to parishioners in the Cathedral that they are terribly shocked by this wanton act. 

This is very distressing for Archdeacon Robert Millar and his parishioners and we want to stand with them at this painful time. We will do what we can to help the Church of Ireland congregation get their beautiful church back to its original state so that their regular worship of our common Lord can be resumed.
